The travelling floral lace edging of this shawl, surrounding the smooth inner heart reminds me of the cricket pitch at Loperwood where my family used to play.
A mindless knit for the main body with a knitted-on lace edging to add interest, works with any sock yarn (solid, semi-solid, variegated) and is an ideal one-skein project.
The edging instructions are entirely written, not charted.
Measurements after blocking:
